{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend, Raia, author of Raia’s Recipes. Raia is a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom of five crazy kids. After the birth of her third child, she was diagnosed with celiac disease. This discovery turned her bread and pasta-filled life upside down and set her on a mission to find out what healthy meant for her family. Aspiring to encourage other moms, she started her blog filled with simple, easy, healthy dishes. Stop by Raia’s Recipes to get plenty of real food, gluten-free recipes and much more!}

I’m always on the lookout for new ways to reduce waste when cooking for my family. I save my veggie scraps and meat bones for stock, use leftover fruits in smoothies, and turn the meal from making coconut milk into flour. Recently, I’ve been turning my kids discarded sweet potato skins into these tasty chips.

My kids love sweet potatoes any way I serve them: as fries, cookies, brownieschocolate pudding, or even just plain ‘ol roasted. Since I know sweet potatoes are naturally loaded with potassium and beta-carotene, vitamin A, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, I don’t mind serving them whenever I can.

These chips are tasty and easy to make. They’re a great afternoon snack or addition to a simple lunch. Eat them as they are, or pair them with your favorite salads, soups, sandwiches, or dips (<– click those links for recipes!). 🙂
